One proposal that seems to be already accepted is from the Everyday Champions Church, in Nottinghamshire, which submitted its proposal for a 652-place school. Their leader said;
"Creationism will be embodied as a belief at Everyday Champions Academy, but will not be taught in the sciences,"Similarly, evolution will be taught as a theory. We believe children should have a broad knowledge of all theories in order that they can make informed choice."Such platitudes do not reassure me. Clearly creationism will permeate through school lessons and ethos even if it is not openly taught as science. Whereas Evolution will be taught as a 'theory' and by that I suspect theory will be used in it's everyday non technical definition of a conjecture or speculation and not in it's true scientific meaning; A set of statements or principles devised to explain a group of facts or phenomena.
And I have to wonder what other accepted scientific theories will be taught to explain the diversity of life on Earth to give their children this broad knowledge they mention.
Ministers have said they will not accept any proposal where there are concerns about the people behind the project. Well I still have concerns about the Everyday Champions Academy so lets see if their proposal is accepted or not.
